I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Covert Ops on the Mind

From the Tarot of the Hidden Realm, the Eight of Swords; from the Heart of Faerie Oracle, the Remembrance:
          There is a look of frustrated determination in this woman's face. Cloaked in black like her friend the crow, she is the fairy version of a ninja. Moore writes, "A good warrior learns to listen with more than her ears and see with more than her eyes." She is seeking a solution, but the answer isn't obvious or easy. She's going to have to think in new ways that take her out of her mental comfort zone. Perhaps she has been too involved in the details of the problem and has failed to see the overall whole (the crow might have some insights if that's the case). The young man on the Heart of Faerie card has a pouty expression of teenage angst. What's he so sad and worried about? He thinks the warrior fairy will forget the lessons of the past - what was successful and what wasn't. As 12 Step groups are fond of saying, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results."


  1. We are such creatures of habit :)
    To try new things does require an open mindset and and courage to fail and learn

    1. Yes, most definitely requires courage too! Good point my friend. :)
